TOP GUN 1986 24-Sheet 70mm MOVIE POSTER BILLBOARD! TOM CRUISE & TONY SCOTT
RARE 70mm 24-SHEET BILLBOARD! CRUISE & SCOTT’S FINEST HOUR ON FILM. NO 1980s COLLECTION IS COMPLETE WITHOUT THIS! Here’s a BONA FIDE ORIGINAL 1986 ORIGINAL. 24-sheet Billboard Movie Poster! This amazing poster was made to advertise the now legendary 80s classic in its first-run back in 1986. This poster is also notable for advertising the 70mm version of the film, which played in a small limited number of theaters. It’s a stellar colorful lithograph on an important 1980’s film offered at an affordable price. The poster was made as a “bleed, ” which means it was made for display WITHOUT a white border as to fill the entire billboard. The poster measures approximately. 9-feet by 20-feet, which is the standard 24-sheet size. Needless to say, they pasted most of the original 24-sheet posters up to boards, and so almost all of them got destroyed by exhibiting them. Happily, this one example survived unaffected. It’s considered one of the rarest and most important 1980’s posters in existence! This movie was so popular that Tom Cruise recently made a sequel slated for release in 2020 to try and relive the success of the more than memorable original, which still stands as his most popular film to date. This 24-sheet poster was printed in sections, as was the case with all 24-sheet billboards made in the 1980s. It can easily be mounted in one piece for display. I can advise the winner on where to go to have that done. I’ve had the original safely tucked away in deep storage for the past 30 years. GONE WITH THE WIND! After 100 years of being the industry standard, paper billboards are now an artifact from the past. The film industry discontinued printing their 24-sheet and 30-sheet movie billboards on paper, just like that – overnight – in the early 2000s. Unlike poster paper, vinyl is NOT archival or stable! It degrades and breaks down over time. Vinyl is also exceeding difficult to store. Basically, vinyl poster stock is not viable for long-term collecting and procuring! I won’t touch it. Happily, this vintage Top Gun 24-sheet was. Made on glorious high-quality paper. It was right about 2007 (or thereabouts) that the paper movie billboard sadly came to an historic end in America. Nevertheless, the paper billboard had enjoyed a full 100 years of prowess. It more than stood tall; it stood mighty, as a unique art form and an important part of our heritage. Life would look a whole lot different here in the United States if it weren’t for the creation of the billboard. There’s no question, billboards have literally changed the landscape of this country – from sea to shining sea. The best of them need to be preserved. This is one of the very best of them – A. I ONLY sell genuine rare originals. Please check my feedback comments and other listings. This poster is in NearMINT UNUSED ORIGINAL CONDITION. THIS POSTER WILL BE PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGED! (magazine article “Top Guns”).
